Julie Taymor's Day in Court?

It had to happen...

Law & Order: Criminal Intent will take on the troubled Broadway production Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark in an upcoming episode, TVLine reports.

The story will focus on a high-flying show called Icarus, which detectives begin investigating when a botched stunt leads to one of the actor's death. Suspects include a "high-strung and larger than life" director possibly modeled after Spider-Man's one-time director Julie Taymor. The episode also features a bisexual rock-star composer named Arno.
Given Law & Order's indebtedness to the NY theatre community's talent, consider this an homage?
